Grandpa Used to Rock in Byrd Park

Musicians in Byrd ParkThis was taken long ago in Byrd Park. My grandfather Chastine Grubbs is the guitar player seated left on the front row. He was my first direct exposure to guitar. I always¬†remember the magical sound of strumming the open strings on his guitar when I visited him as a child. I’m sure it’s what got me started on this path many years ago.Stamped on the back of the photo is “Layton’s Studio 819 E Broad St”
A local Tumblr account posted this picture saying that the guitarist is his grandfather.¬† But, what’s really significant here is that this was taken in Byrd Park. Can anyone place exactly where in the park this band of rockers are seated?
